About Me

About Me Muddy Boots and Diamonds blog www.muddybootsanddiamonds.com

I love chocolate cake and beer. I hate cheese. I’ve recently discovered a huge liking for running and PiYo.

I started this blog as a way to document my family building journey – privately. My focus changed with miscarriage of our first baby. I couldn’t find any blogs that discussed D&Cs or miscarriage. I couldn’t be the only one who felt angry, afraid, and sad over the loss of a much-wanted baby. So I decided to start sharing how I was feeling in hopes my words would find their way to other people trying to navigate the often lonely journey pregnancy loss can bring.

This blog has been a form of therapy as I’ve written about my fears and triumphs through loss, pregnancy, postpartum depression and anxiety. It’s given me an outlet to document the ins and outs I’ve experienced with raising my two boys, G and L. I also enjoy photography, crafting, baking, and traveling and blog about them when I have the chance.

I can also be found on Twitter, and Instagram. I’m available for collaborations (no guest posts, please). More information on how we can work together can be found here.
